Help Victims of Cyclone Fani

SOS Children's Villages of India Disaster Relief and Emergency Response team is working to provide support to minimum 1000 families.

Cyclone FANI, the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall over the Indian mailand in the last 20 years, has struck Odisha with wind speed reaching to 175 kmph. The storm was equivalent to a Category 4 Storm, triggering heavy rainfall in vast areas.

Large areas in the town of Puri and its adjoining districts were submerged under water, as heavy rains hit the entire coastal belt of Odisha. Families who were already living on the brink of poverty are now left with nothing. The loss of life, home, crops, and livestock is devastating. Around 8, 00,000 people have been evacuated. Our team from SOS Children's Villages of India is on the ground, implementing a long-term rehabilitation programme for the worst-affected families.

As it happens with every natural disaster, children are hit the hardest! They struggle with intense psychological trauma as they deal with the loss of their loved ones, homes, and belongings. Children need urgent support to make it through such crisis.

SOS Children’s Villages of India has set up two relief camps reaching out to affected 1000 families who are most vulnerable. Safe Child Care Spaces for children is being created in these Relief Camps. The relief work will begin from 4th May, 2019.
